September Gardening Australia Magazine
The September issue of the Gardening Australia Magazine heralds the beginning of Spring in Australia!
This issue is jam packed with Spring Gardening Tips, Ideas (350+ of them) and jobs to keep us all busy.
There is a great Vegetable Growing guide from Jerry Colbey-Williams. Even though Jerry now lives in sub-tropical Brisbane he has worked in colder climates (UK) so knows how to garden in all climates.
Maggie Beer has a special on growing Oranges and of course there are a couple of her recipes including an interesting Grilled Orange Asparagus and Witlof Salad, sounds yummy!!
I am pleased to see this magazine now includes quite a selection of practical articles on food growing and great photos of pests and beneficial insect each month. This month's article from Sophie Thomson on the Portuguese Millipede was a helpful read as these pests are increasing in numbers in my garden (and house) and are rivalling European Earwigs as my number one enemy lately!!
There is a step-by-step from Millie Ross on building her version of a Wicking Bed. It's useful to see a different way of doing things but I think I'll stick with my way as it has worked well for me for four years now and I like including worms in my systems!

Thanks to the people at Morey Media, who do the PR for Gardening Australia, for sending me a freebie copy of this latest magazine so that I could review it here for you.
